      2 very unwanted cards here on turn and river. I folded the river, only thing that beats me is flush, but even if it is a bluff I'm only splitting a small pot. On the turn is it likely they may be holding AT, KQ, KJ?

      you should raise pf with QJs, because:
      - you´re ip, and can control the size of the pot
      - you´re pf aggressor and ip, so often you can c-bet on Ax/Kx boards and take pot down with Q high
      - you´re ip (which means you can basically do whatevr you want:P )

      I would raise flop to 1$, since it is drawy. I think you can b/f turn and then evaluate on the river if you want to bet again

      River fold is fine as you said, since at best cases you´re only splitting the pot.
